There is nothing more inspiring than hearing the stories of women who have managed to build successful businesses around family life. Here is a collection of interviews with some fabulous women I have had the pleasure of meeting!
Hannah Martin is the founder of Talented Ladies Club, an online magazine and training academy for ambitious career, business and freelance mothers with over 82,000 monthly readers. Hannah is also an award-winning copywriter and qualified psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner. She chats to us about why she started her own business, and how she's helping other women do the same.
In this episode of the Mumpreneur Motivation Series we tried something a bit different! It seemed crazy not to include a bit of a cooking demo when I was chatting to Sarah about her journey as an Indian Chef, so we have combined her interview with making Saag Paneer! Sarah is a leading example of an exceptional mumpreneur. Within a year of starting her business she is taking over the Indian food industry by storm and is recognised as the most innovative and inspirational individual. As Ambassador of UK Nepal Friendship Society, Child Nepal and Janaki Women's Awareness Society she uses her talents as a force for good in society to help others. Food and Love! In this interview she talks openly about what prompted her to leave her career in finance and pursue her passion.
Barbara is an expert nutritionist who exceeds customer expectations through her consultations, advice, products and service. Barbara founded Nutrichef in 2004 and ran it for 12 years. In 2008 she won the UK Entrepreneur of the Year award, and in 2015 she won the Venus Lifetime Achievement Award. She is a true inspiration and shares some nuggets of advice in this interview.
Emily started Create Gift Love in 2012 with her husband Tony. They are now in the exclusive best seller’s list on Not on the High Street with orders being placed from as far afield as Australia. As a trained pharmacist, Emily started Create Gift Love by chance when demand for her handmade cufflinks began to soar. Outgrowing the shed in the back garden pretty quickly, they now produce over 300 individual products for all occasions. Emily talks openly about scaling the business whilst raising two young children.
